A Sad Day For Comedy

The man who screwed an entire countryItalian Prime Minister and noted teenage girl enthusiast Silvio “Bunga Bunga” Berlusconi is stepping down:

Berlusconi confirmed a statement from President Giorgio Napolitano that he would step down as soon as parliament passed urgent budget reforms demanded by European leaders after Italy was sucked into epicenter of the euro zone debt crisis.

The votes in both houses of parliament are likely this month and they would spell the end of a 17-year dominance of Italy by the flamboyant billionaire media magnate.

Berlusconi’s corporatist governing style and creepy-old-man personal life made him one of Europe’s least appealing leaders. But you’ve gotta admit he did have a gift for phrasemaking.

Noted teenage girl enthusiast? Yes, sexual predators are comedy gold.

My comment was meant to be tongue in cheek. Berlusconi has every potential to be a disgraced clown post-office too, so there is that.
